Spring is knocking on the door, you guys! I cannot WAIT for the sunshine, the warmer weather, and the fresh pop of color from fragrant fresh flowers!

As we come out of our winter “hibernation,” we are also gearing up for a busier schedule. From 3 different soccer teams’ practices and games, to spring break, Easter, and school performances, there’s no shortage of running around.

That’s why now, more than ever, I’m relying on quick-prep recipes that get me in and out of the kitchen with minimal effort and maximum flavor!

This breakfast casserole with bacon, egg, cheese and crescent rolls checks all of the boxes.

With just a few minutes of prep, I can throw together a show-stopping meal that will impress guests for a holiday brunch…and that will make my husband smile at the dinner table on a busy weeknight! Breakfast for dinner is the best, right?!

You definitely don’t need to wait for a special occasion to serve a crescent roll casserole!

Before we get to the details of the recipe itself, I’m going to share my best time-saving, busy-mom trick of all: online grocery shopping at Walmart!

Holy cow, this service has seriously changed my life!

Any parents with little kids know that it can be an exhausting undertaking to haul multiple children through a crowded store. It’s time-consuming, it’s stressful, and we often leave frustrated and overwhelmed. Not anymore!

Ever since our local Walmart started offering a FREE online pickup service, I’ve never looked back. At least once a week (and often more), I sit down at my computer whenever it’s convenient (at night, early in the morning, during nap time, etc.) and select my groceries.

From the comfort of my couch, I can enjoy a cup of coffee or a TV show while clicking the boxes of the items on my list.

Walmart’s website saves the products that I purchase frequently, so I’m sure that I never forget one of our staples. Plus, it’s one-stop shopping because I can add toiletries, fresh flowers, cleaning supplies, and other household items to my list that I wouldn’t otherwise be able to purchase from a regular grocery store.

Whenever I’m ready to place my order, the website allows me to schedule my pick-up during a 1-hour window.

On this particular day, I ordered my groceries early in the morning while my kids were still sleeping, and scheduled them for pick-up that same day between 12:00 – 1:00 p.m. It doesn’t get more convenient than that, right?

When the grocery order is ready, you’re notified via email and text. You can click one button on the Walmart app to “check in” and tell the store that you’re on the way. It then tracks your progress via GPS so that the clerks know exactly when you are going to arrive.

They’re often waiting by the curb for me with my cart of groceries by the time I pull into the reserved parking spot!

I can sit in my car with the kids (and not even unbuckle any car seats) while the bags are loaded into my trunk. Everything is prepaid for with my credit card when I place my order online, so I don’t even need to get out my wallet.

I’m telling you…this is how I will forever do my grocery shopping!

Did I mention that the service is free? As long as you spend $30, there is no charge for your own personal shopper! Plus, I save a lot of money by avoiding impulse purchases or those snacks, cereals, and bakery treats that my kids like to throw into the cart.

Okay, so back to the recipe!

I (obviously) ordered all of the ingredients that I needed for this breakfast casserole with bacon online at Walmart.

The KEY ingredient for a beautiful, puffy, buttery crust are these classic Pillsbury™ Refrigerated Original Crescent Rolls. They turn out perfectly flakey and golden brown every single time!

In addition to the crescent rolls, you will need eggs, milk, cooked bacon, and shredded cheese. So simple!

If you’re interested, last week I shared a video of me making this casserole in my Instagram stories, which you can still see in my “highlights” on IG here.

How To Make  A Breakfast Casserole With Bacon

Start by pressing the crescent roll dough into the bottom of large casserole dish. It’s fine if it overlaps a bit, and it doesn’t need to be perfect!

Sprinkle the chopped bacon and the cheese over top of the dough, and then whisk together the eggs and milk.Eggs and milk whisked together in a glass bowl ready to make a breakfast casserole with bacon

Pour the egg mixture over the crust, pop it in the oven for about 35 minutes, and ta-da!

The end result is a gorgeous breakfast casserole with bacon and crescent rolls. And you know what’s so cool?

During the baking process, the crescent roll dough flips around with the eggs, so that the base layer of the casserole is like a fluffy egg omelet, while the flakey, buttery, golden brown crust rises to the top. The crust is studded with the bacon and cheddar cheese, and finally garnished with freshly chopped chives. Basically, heaven on a plate!

This 5-Ingredient Breakfast Casserole with Bacon Is Super Easy To Make!

Whether you’re hosting a special spring brunch, attending a church potluck, or just looking for an easy dinner to serve your family, I hope that this delicious breakfast casserole with bacon makes your life in the kitchen a little bit easier!

There’s so much to enjoy this season, so it would be a shame to waste the sunny days with tedious grocery shopping or stressful meal prep. Instead, order your food online, stir together a quick one-dish meal, and get outside to cheer on the soccer sidelines, take a walk to smell the flowers, or just sit on the couch and read a good book. The work is done for you!

A simple 5-ingredient breakfast casserole with bacon, egg, cheese and crescent rolls. It's an easy, crowd-pleasing dish that comes together in just 10 minutes.


  • 2 cans 8 ounces each Pillsbury™ Refrigerated Original Crescent Rolls
  • 1 ½ cups cooked diced bacon (I used 17 slices of thick-cut cooked bacon, or about 5 ounces cooked)*
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 6 eggs
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • Salt and pepper to taste (optional)
  • Optional garnish: fresh chives sliced green onions, or fresh parsley


  • Preheat oven to 375F/190C. Spray a 13-inch x 9-inch baking dish with cooking spray and set aside.
  • Unroll crescent dough and spread in the bottom of the prepared dish. It’s fine if the dough overlaps slightly. Gently press together the perforations to seal the dough.
  • Place diced bacon on top of crescent rolls. Sprinkle with cheddar cheese.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs and milk. Add salt and pepper, to taste (if desired).
  • Pour egg mixture over bacon and cheese.
  • Bake, uncovered, for 35 – 40 minutes, or until eggs are set. Check on the casserole after about 20-25 minutes. If the crust is looking golden brown, cover the casserole lightly with foil and continue baking until the eggs are set. This will prevent the crust from becoming too dark.
  • Allow the casserole to rest for about 10 minutes before slicing and serving.
  • Garnish with chives, green onions, or parsley.


Cooking for a Smaller Family? Cut the ingredients in half and prepare the casserole in an 8-inch square baking dish. The cooking instructions remain the same, although the baking time may be a bit shorter (30-35 minutes).
*I purchase 2 boxes of thick-cut cooked bacon for a shortcut. You can cook your own bacon at home, if you prefer.

    Love this! Can’t wait to try!

    1. Blair says:

      Mmmmm…bacon! 🙂

    2. Kim says:

      Does this freeze well?

      1. Blair says:

        Hi, Kim! I haven’t tried freezing this particular breakfast casserole, but I think it should work fine. I would bake it first, allow it to cool completely, and then wrap tightly and freeze. Thaw in the fridge overnight, allow to come to room temp on the counter when ready to bake, and then reheat at 350 degrees F until warmed through. You may need to cover it loosely with foil while reheating so that it doesn’t get too dark on top. Enjoy!

  2. Melissa says:

    I’ve got this in the oven now! It smells so good. I can’t wait to eat it. We are topping it with salsa, and green onions. The kids want it plain. Either way a great, easy, and delicious meal. Thank you!

    1. Blair says:

      That’s great, Melissa! Enjoy! 🙂

        It took about an hour and a half to cook. Next time I will use one cup of milk.

        1. Betty says:

          2 Cups of milk is way too much! Maybe 1/2 cup. It was a drippy liquid mess

  3. Kristy from Southern In Law says:

    I wishhhh we had crescent rolls here so I could make this! I’m going to have to come up with a DIY version!

    1. Blair says:

      Oh, man…do you have something similar like refrigerated croissant dough? It’s the best!

  4. Karin says:

    Do you think this could be made the day before and put in the fridge till I put it in the oven the next morning?

    1. Blair says:

      Hi, Karin! Yes, I think it would be great as an overnight casserole!

  5. Emily Kemp says:

    What a great idea for using crescent rolls, I’m so excited to try this!

    1. Blair says:

      Yesss! This is such an easy way to enjoy them! 🙂

  6. Dennise Worboys says:

    i am so trying this today…wondering what to do different with crescent rolls and a nice light dinner with a salad tonight…
    also looking to make some like meals for a recovering friend…who needs some TLC

    1. Blair says:

      That’s great, Dennise! I hope that you and your friend enjoy the casserole. We love this meal! 🙂

  7. Tamara Dilg says:

    Hey Blair, this recipe looks great, I’m making it tomorrow for our ladies brunch at church. Do you think I could add a little tomato? And, can I use sausage instead of bacon. That’s all I have. I know it won’t be as pretty, but will it work?

    1. Blair says:

      Hi, Tamara! Yes — you can definitely use some tomato. Jut make sure that it’s seeded and patted dry so that the juices don’t make the dish too watery. The sausage will work great — I’ve made it both ways! 🙂

  8. Jennifer Anne Alexander says:

    I made this for my dinner tonight and I can’t wait to try it.im just waiting for it to cool so I can cut it up!

    1. Blair says:

      Awesome! Hope you love it, Jennifer Anne!

  9. Susie. Arteberry says:

    Hi there I have it in the oven now. I put sausage in mine along with the bacon. Can’t wait to eat it. Thanks for the recipe.❤️

    1. Blair says:

      Awesome! Enjoy!

  10. Lisa Hurt says:

    First, I’d like to say THANK YOU! I was in a pinch for dinner and it was too nasty outside to head to the store, so I found this and thought, breakfast casserole for dinner if I have the stuff. I used more cheese, but other than that, followed the recipe exact. I baked bacon for the first time too, which went well. My husband and my daughter both came back for seconds, but I was right behind them haha! I will absolutely make this again, and may play around with ingredients, sausage or ham, etc. But this was FABULOUS!

    1. Blair says:

      Yay! I love when you can avoid a trip to the store by using ingredients that you already have at home. I’m so glad that you all enjoyed it!

    2. Carrie G Brink says:

      5 stars
      Delicious and easy! Added green pepper and onion. This will be my go to for brunch!!

      1. Blair says:

        Thank you, Carrie! I’m so glad that you enjoyed it!

  11. Cat says:

    Thank you, this recipe is awesome! My husband put sriracha on it and it was even better!

    1. Blair says:

      Great! I bet it was perfect with that added hot sauce! 🙂

  12. Dreyes says:

    This looks amazing!
    Have you ever doubled the recipe?
    I am wanting to make this for a school staff/ teachers breakfast.

    1. Blair says:

      Hi! You can definitely double the recipe, but you would need to bake it in two separate 9 x 13-inch pans (unless you have one giant pan instead). I bet the teachers will love it! 🙂

  13. Diane Lieberman says:

    I had crescent rolls on the verge of expiring, mushrooms and half an onion left over from the lasagna I made earlier in the week, 3 slices of slab bacon in the freezer, and 1/4 of a brie circle. Cooked the bacon, caramelized the onion, added mushrooms and then chopped bacon. Topped with brie for the 10 minutes. It looks amazing, lol!

    1. Blair says:

      Your version sounds amazing, Diane! Hope you enjoyed it! 🙂

  14. Rebecca says:

    Could I add thawed and drained frozen spinach? Would that
    Mess up any physics of the dough rising???

    1. Blair says:

      Hi, Rebecca! Yes — I think that would be a delicious addition. Just make sure that you squeeze the spinach really dry. 🙂

      1. Rebecca says:

        Easier said than done but hopefully it’s good enough ..about to see !! Thanks for the recipes!!! Love them all!

  15. Terri Jones says:

    The crust never rose to the top and stuck to the bottom. Took much longer to cook. Won’t try this again. A waste of ingredients.

  16. Susan says:

    5 stars
    My family really likes this breakfast casserole! Since we live at 6300 feet above sea level I have had to make some adjustments! Bake at 325 degrees for an hour and fifteen minutes loosely covered with foil! Remove the foil for the last 3-5 minutes of baking! Turns out perfect!! Thanks for the great recipe!

    1. Blair says:

      That’s great, Susan! I’m so glad that you’ve figured out how to make it work at your elevation. Thanks for sharing those details for any other readers in a similar situation!

  17. Abby says:

    5 stars
    This was an amazing recipe! I replaced the bacon with ham, because we have leftover ham from Christmas. Definitely making this again!

    1. Blair says:

      Thanks, Abby!

  19. Linda says:

    5 stars
    This recipe was great and delicious , easy to make, can prepare not before too. I also used this with Pillsbury flaky biscuits and cut them in small pieces. Abd mixed everything together added chopped ham, prosciutto and 1/4 cup half and half to give it a rick taste. I did it cook it longer about 10 minutes.. delicious

    1. The Seasoned Mom says:

      Thank you for the feedback, Linda. We’re so glad you enjoyed it!
